Choose Happiness- CAS Sympathy for a Color and Sketch Challenge :-)
I created two completely different Clean and Simple cards using the Hand StampedSentiments HSSCC209 Color Challenge along with the Splitcoaststampers’ SC536 Sketch (see details here and gallery here).
I will share the second card in a separate post since it also incorporates stenciling for the CAS320 Challenge :-)
Again, if you have not already done so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above challenge sites- they have wonderful Design Team samples as well as inspiration from their galleries!
Using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp the flower and stem images from Choose Happiness onto Whisper White cardstock.
Use an AqauPainter™ with Calypso Coral Classic Ink to color the flower and Mossy Meadow Classic Ink to color the eaves.
Add definition with the Stampin’ Write marker in the same colors as above and use the White Gel Pen to add highlights to the center of the flower.
Create a 1 ¾” Square of Whisper White cardstock and mount it onto a 2” square of Bermuda Bay cardstock.
Add the 2 ¼” half square of Whisper White cardstock to the right hand side of the layered square.
“Fussy-cut” the flower and leaves and mount to the center of the layered square.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Chevron Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut a panel 2” wide x 5 ¼” long.
Mount the embossed panel onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock.
Stamp the sentiment using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and add the layered flower square.
Mount the entire panel onto the Whisper White card base to finish off the card.
